Web Whiparound: Will Americans Give Office Some Space?

The inevitable comparisons have begun between the brand-new NBC remake of The Office and the BBC Original. And while few critics deem it as good as the one from across the pond, many seem surprised that it's as enjoyable as it is, easy to do when you consider Coupling. NBC's last disastrous adaptation.

Personally, I can't wait to see it, even though I fully expect it to be disappointing.
